lyrics

Hell’s a nasty place, made for society’s disgraces
A place where most of us will have to go
But among the lies and slander, there’s a place for Alexander
Though I wouldn’t dare to try and tell him so

Without delay he pulled my focus, and at first I failed to
notice
How he preyed on me and closely watched his words
So soon I wanted to explore him, sooner still I just adored him
And the rest is just a dirty, sweaty blur

And he said...
"This is how I take you down,
This is how I keep you quiet
I, I set you aside
I'll have you at my disposal"

He reeled me in without strain, he had me on a ball and chain
I was vulnerable to him, exposed and bare
Though I was bitter, disenchanted, I believed these thoughts he
planted
He sat with pride upon his liar's chair

His perfect body, sunken eyes, his all-time lows and all-time
highs
I wanted them more than anything on Earth
My love was tried and true, but at the same time part of me knew
He was more trouble than he’ll ever be worth

And he said...
"This is how I take you down,
This is how I keep you quiet
I, I set you aside
I'll have you at my disposal"

I let him in without objection, I devoted my attention
His look-at-me laments tore me apart
And so he went in for the kill, he fucked me over for a thrill
It was a kamikaze mission from the start

I tried to fill with emotion, his rusted heart made out of tin
And that’s when things went up in fire and smoke
We called it off and called it even, but the things I once
believed in
Were reduced to punchlines of his twisted joke

This is how I take you down,
This is how I keep you quiet
I, I set you aside
I'll have you at my disposal

This is how I take you down,
This is how I keep you quiet
I, I set you aside
I'll have you at my disposal

Hell’s a nasty place, made for society’s disgraces
A place where most of us will have to go
But among the lies and slander, there’s a place for Alexander
And even if I tell him, he wouldn’t think it’s so

These thoughts have not quite faded, I’m so wounded and so
jaded,
You’re a wicked, cold, and stony statuette
But despite the lies and slander, I still care, my Alexander
You’re the kind of guy I wish I’d never met.
